With her sweet, sultry, arresting country soprano, Lorrie Morgan is one of the biggest names on the country music scene, carving out a career that has garnered 14 top-ten hits, including “Five Minutes,” “Something in Red,” “Watch Me” and “What Part of No.” She has recorded 14 albums, seven of which have gone gold and platinum, and has won four Female Vocalist of the Year awards.

She is one of the most eloquently emotive country vocalists of our time, a beauty who first burst onto the scene when barely a teenager, singing “Paper Roses” with her dad, country star George Morgan at the Grand Ole Opry.

In 1984, Lorrie became the youngest person in history to become an Opry member.

Her latest offering Letting Go…. Slow showcases a rainbow of emotions, from profound heartache
to bright, shiny humor, struggling with disappointment and kicking up her stilettos in playful style. The collection is a blend of new songs and reinventions of country classics. She brings her lustrous soprano lilt and a cha-cha tempo to Patsy Cline’s “Strange,” and a slow and deep dip to Bobby Gentry’s “Ode to Billie Jo,” a jaunty, reggae-ish groove to Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay,” and a redolent haunt to Larry Gaitlin’s “I’ve Done Enough Dying Today.” Her new songs include the humorous ditty “Jesus and Hairspray,” the jazzier, late night tone of “Spilt Milk,” and the barroom weeper “Lonely Whiskey.”

With torchy, believable delivery, Lorrie Morgan is living up to her reputation as one of country music’s premiere singers. Catch her live with her band.
